An influencer's core stats on Heepsy.

Follower count

To search for influencers with a specific range of followers, use the followers filter. The slider lets you set a follower range from 5K to 1M followers.

Heepsy includes influencers with 5K followers or more. So if you're looking for someone with fewer followers than that, you won't find them on the platform.

Keep in mind that follower count can drive up an influencer's price for collaborations. Generally, the more followers an influencer has, the more they charge per post.

Follower growth rate and growth over time

When it's time to analyze an influencer's profile, you can check out their follower growth rate. This percentage shows you how much an influencer has grown their profile over time. You can hover over a specific date to see how many followers they had at that time.

If you see sudden spikes in growth, first check to see if they hosted a giveaway and went viral. But if you don't find a logical explanation, the spike could show that the influencer bought fake followers.
